Your team is the fuel that keeps the engine running! There is no time when you need them more than during the busiest season of the year. These 5 ways to bring good energy and team spirit to your salon will help keep the tank full throughout the holiday season.
Try rewarding your staff with a tip each week! Who made a difference, supported their colleagues, sold the most retail or simply kept their cool during this hectic time of year? Give them a well-deserved tip: a $50 bill for all their hard work.
Showcasing your team is an inexpensive and worthwhile way to engage your guests, strengthen relationships and give your best stylists a voice. Launch this fun incentive where a different stylist will be featured online each month of the year. Give back to your team and help them build their personal brand!
Seemingly a thing of the past, this classic method for showing appreciation can make your staff feel special. Ensure that your notes are specific: include why you are recognizing them and how they made a difference.
THE FAIRY BOX
Be your team’s fairy godmother and make their wishes come true. Leave a stack of blank cards next to a “wish box” where staff members can make a request. At the end of the week, grant one of the wishes from the box. Be the hero and make someone’s day!
Purchase and wrap small gifts, and keep them by a jar containing everyone’s names. At the end of your busiest days, draw a name from the jar and have that person pick a gift. The idea is for each person to unwrap a smile by the end of the long holiday season. Check out our gift guide for some of our favorites under $20.
